This was a great tour of the Mayan ruins and swimming in the cenotes was fantastic! The meal was probably the least enjoyable part - very small portions with little selection. Offering a buffet would be preferred. Our guide Alexis was great - very knowledgeable. However the majority of guests were Spanish speaking- only 4 of us from the US and Canada- so he did very little English translation. Overall a great experience.

The tour was well organized and we were picked up from our hotel on the Costa Mujeres on time. The stay at the cenote was a bit long. Overall, we were on the road from Cancun and back 12.5 hours.

EKINOX Tours was excellent. They picked us up on time and the tour guide was very friendly. Great experience!

We had the best time in Tulum. A must visit place. We saw a lot of Iguanas.

Activité incroyable et les guides sont vraiment super
